Milk meat and food products now banned on entry to Spain from the UK
SPANISH travel has faced near-constant changing travel rules over the past months what with Brexit and coronavirus.
Yesterday, the Foreign Office issued a new update to its travel advice for Spain and what’s not allowed.
Now Brexit has taken place once and for all, there are new measures around taking food and drink into Spain.
“You cannot take meat, milk, or products containing them into EU countries,” said the FCDO.
“There are some exceptions for medical reasons, for example, certain amounts of powdered infant milk, infant food, or pet food required for medical reasons.”
Travelers can check the rules about taking food and drink into the EU on the European Commission website.
Meanwhile, a passenger was left astounded as his ham sarnie was snatched from him arriving in Holland.
Border officials in the Netherlands have confiscated ham sandwiches and other food items from UK travelers due to post-Brexit rules.
Dutch TV network NPO filmed customs patrols explaining to arrivals that they cannot take meat or dairy products into the EU.
One driver who arrived by ferry at the Hook of Holland seaport was left bemused after being told he would lose his ham sandwiches.
The man asked whether he can “take off the meat and you leave me the bread?”
But a border guard responded: “No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to the Brexit, sir. I’m sorry.”
